Unafraid: Living with Courage and Hope

The Fear of the Unknown

Here is an acronym for fear: False events appearing real. One key to approach unhealthy fear is known in the field of therapy is simply known as confronting your fears. Why? Because we often are anxious about things so we avoid it, and the worry, anxiety or fear remains. Exposure helps you clearly identify the source of your fear aor anxiety and then to slowly face your fear by exposing yourself to it, usually starting with small steps and gradually increasing the level of exposure. Since our fears are typically unfounded, when we confront them we find they no longer control us, we begin to conquer them. Here is a key, don’t do it alone, trust in God, praying and even singing to God, imagining the very things God promises, and you will find a peace that passes understanding, that will guard your heart and mind.
